I got this fantastic cook book, Meringue Girls Cookbook - Incredible Meringues everybody can make, from my sister's boyfriend for my birthday. I had never heard of the Meringue Girls, but now I'm pretty much obsessed!
I love the fact that the book is dedicated to 'everyone who dreams of leaving their 9 to 5', and not only are the recipes super tasty looking, the girls are pretty cool themselves!
Over the last few months my aim has been to get back to the roots of cooking and find some classic recipes that I can master and this book has given me the nudge to try my hand at a mastering a good meringue.
I tried this weekend to master the simple chocolate meringue kiss, and was definitely pleased with the result.
I was so pleased that I made another batch on Sunday to take to the bake sale at work on Monday.
